Merc if it's your only car; Maserati if not.

GTR is just a whole other monster

Same goes for the ZO6

Have you considered the Z06?

I did have a ride in GTR but that too stiff as a DD for me. E63 is too big, i would rather go for c63

What about the Gran Turismo S? It has more power than the regular one, are there any of those avail for around the same price? Out of the 550 and the GT, I'd def go with the GT. Much nicer looking car, and a lot less common. Power isn't everything, and there's no way the car is a dog regardless with 400 HP.

The GT S is out of my budget, it costs a lot more.

ISF

Comfortable, reliable, and faster then stock m3s...

In a straight line

And you do not see those too often.

I test drove the C63 on a couple of different occassions before deciding to get my d. The car is an animal. The exhaust note is intoxicating. Relatively comfortable (for what it is), but if you really drive that much the mpg's will put a hurt'n on your wallet.

Have you considered the IS-F? It's another car I test drove at least twice. It will get better mpg's then the C63, comfy ride, great performance and the exhaust note is inspiring, not to mention the interior is pretty plush.

I really like the Maserati. It is one of the most beautiful cars








If you dont mind crossing over to the enemy I think the facelift C63 is nice, and RS5 comes to USA later on this year.

I thought that Maser and C63 is more reliable then my 335i. Maybe not Maser but c63 for sure

Between this and several recent comments it's clear you know fuck all about cars.

The C63 may be faster in a straight line, is definitely less reliable, gets way shittier gas mileage and does not handle better than the IS F. The 2011 F puts down the same times as an M3 in a straight line and around the track. The C63 is also more expensive. They're all great cars, but don't sit their and spew bs about something you clearly know nothing about.

Gotta agree. C63 may be fun and a rubber burner but it does NOT handle as well as an ISF.

With the possible exception of the Bentley Conti GT, a higher MSRP price does not necessarily translate into higher reliability.

It's possible. I couldn't honestly say the 335 is a reliable car, especially since I can count on 2 hands the number of people I know personally IRL that have been hit by the HPFP plague.
